Exclusion is boring, anyway! Photo via Wikimedia.

As you may or may not have heard, some housing news has surfaced: EC Exclusion Suites are no more. So if you’re a freshman or sophomore who was banking on a high rise suite at five for the price of three (inhabitants : lottery numbers, that is), you might be sobbing uncontrollably, or carving “McBain… Nooooooooo” into your flesh right now. But Bwog is here to tell you not to fret!

We’d like to remind you of a few things:

  • Housing selection doesn’t even start to rear its head until March. So do yourself a favor and wait a few weeks to worry and plan and stress out and alienate that seventh person who wants to live in your six-person suite.
  • This whole ECX to just plain EC drama probably won’t make a difference. It’s going to suck for everybody and there won’t be any winners, but it’ll probably just suck less for juniors.
  • It isn’t likely to affect all-senior groups that much either. Groups of 5 seniors that realize they will have to settle for ECX doubles will still have to settle for ECX doubles.
  • And last but not least, there will be lots of snacks (candy and drinks!) at suite selection. Which means that you actually have something to look forward to.
